    I eat slowly and steadily and everything gets chewed up well. At a restaurant, the waitress is always trying to take my plate before I'm through, or I look up and everybody is looking at me with their plates already clean and I'm still plugging away. I enjoy my food but if I try to wolf it down, I choke, and I have to cut things up small.

    Depends on how hungry I am. If I am, I'm an extremely quick eater; otherwise, average.

Eating is a chore and I hate having to get through it. As a child, I was always punished for not completing my lunch within the break, and my mother had to tell my teachers that it was okay with her if I left food over. My teachers would make me sit on the floor with all the "slow eaters" and finish my lunch, and even THEN I was the last one left! To me, it's less about chewing 32 times and more about preparing myself for the next bite, easing the food down and not gulping it down. I hate eating, and anyone forcing me to eat quickly is just going to get puked on soon!
    I bet I can outslow you.

    I learned to eat quickly in school. In the mornings, I discovered that I could pour myself a bowl of cereal, add the milk, and have the whole thing eaten in three minutes.

    In high school they gave us 22 minutes to get to our lockers, go from there to the cafeteria, stand in line for our meal, take a seat, eat the meal, and return the tray. I developed the eating habits of a Russian boar.

    I am a grazer. I don't like big meals. I'd rather have a couple of bites of different things every hour
    All I know for sure is that I come from a long line of dead people

    I can't eat fast enough. I will finish a feast in under 5 minutes. The faster the better. I just want to be done and get back to obsessing over whatever it is I've been obsessing about (usually art). I care not if other people are around or if it's in a restaurant or something; I get my food, and I finish eating before people realize how fast I've eaten.

    It's important to actually chew your food properly. I cannot tell you how many times I heard my mother say "Digestion begins in the mouth." when I was growing up.

    It's really true. The enzymes in the saliva start the digestion process and are essential for proper nutrient absorption. Plus, eating slowly allows your brain to actually send the signal that you're full when you're full, so it helps to prevent overeating.

    Grazing is supposed to be absolutely fantastic for your metabolism and energy levels. I envy those who are naturally inclined to eat that way.
